LANSING (WKZO) -- Legislation that will cost Kalamazoo, Calhoun, and Van Buren Counties one judge each, has been delivered to Governor Snyder’s office for his signature.

The 17-bill package was approved to abolish 36 elected judges' positions. According to Chief Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court Robert Young, it would be the largest cut in judgeship’s ever accomplished in the U.S.

Governor Snyder is expected to sign it.
